Finalist in Food

About Erik Lamkin

"Go big or go home," says Erik Lamkin, known on social media as Erik the Electric. He went from being diagnosed with anorexia at age 17 to a pro eater with 1M+ YouTube subscribers and another +110K on Instagram. Fans of Erik’s channels watch him eat anything (and everything) from supercharged fast food meals to massive breakfasts, even eating "Every Sub on the Subway Menu!" Erik hit a new milestone in late 2019, going beyond his 100,000 calorie challenge to hit an unhinged *unlimited* calorie challenge. When he’s not shoving as much food as possible into his mouth, Erik can be seen riding on his bicycle, lifting weights, or rocking out on the guitar.
